Anand - Carlsen Last Game Press Conference

The great match ended just a few moments ago. Since the previous edition of Video Friday covered the Anand - Carlsen Opening Ceremony, it's a fitting coincidence that this edition marks the end of the match.

Game 10 - Post Match Press Conference with Viswanathan Anand and Magnus Carlsen (26:36) • 'Magnus Carlsen drew game 10 to win the FIDE World Championship 2013 by beating Viswanathan Anand and joins elite list of World Champions.'

In the coming weeks and months, much will be written about the games in Chennai. For now, I would just like to offer congratulations to GM Carlsen on his becoming World Champion and thanks to GM Anand for having been such a worthy titleholder all these years. A new chapter in the ongoing evolution of chess starts today.
